Note: If you are NOT using I Need to Move base mod but have installed it in the past, delete INeedToMove.xml from the Mods directory.


MOD 1: I Need To Move (current version 1.0b, compatible with all LH versions)

(1.7XD is a compatibility version that is installed as well as 1.0b and makes the mod compatible with XtraDeconstruct 1.7 versions):

Increases the moves for the slow (base 2 or 3 Movement with no ability to use mounts) Champions Mausolos the Construct, Raza the Wilding Shaman, Kasst the Spider, Tuatha the Troll and Huhrus the Ogre to a starting amount of 3 Strategic Moves and 2 Tactical Moves and automatically adds 1 of each move for every 10 levels.

Now slower heroes have realised the need to move and can now lead armies of their own!

[Installation Instructions for MOD 1]
Extract the INeedToMove.xml file into your My Documents\My Games\LegendaryHeroes\Mods directory and make sure Use Mods is enabled in-game.

[Un-installation Instructions for MOD 1]
Delete the INeedToMove.xml file from the Mods directory.  To delete the Compatibility version, delete "INeedToMove_ModifiedHeroes-.xml" file from the "Z" Folder which is inside the Mods directory.


MOD 2: No XP Split For Quest/Event Heroes (current version 1.7b, compatible with LH 1.7)

(1.7XD is a compatibility version that is installed as well as 1.7b and makes the mod compatible with XtraDeconstruct 1.7 versions)

Allows all Quest and Random Event heroes from the base game except Ascian and Quest Pack Alexandros to not split combat experience when they are in an army with heroes that do.  As long as there is not more than one hero in an army that splits experience (Sovereigns, Fame Heroes and Ascian and Quest Pack Alexandros) they will all get full hero experience.

[Installation Instructions for MOD 2]
Open the zip file, then extract the entire NoXPSplit directory inside the zip file to the following directory (overwriting matching files):

My Documents\My Games\LegendaryHeroes\Mods

Make sure Use Mods is enabled in-game.

[Un-installation Instructions for MOD 2]
To uninstall this mod, you just need to delete the NoXPSplit directory from the Mods directory.  To delete the Compatibility version, delete "NoXPSplit_ModifiedHeroes-.xml" file from the "Z" Folder which is inside the Mods directory.

You should really expand it to all the slow champions to call it a mod. Tuatha (troll champion), the spider champion etc. could use this ability as well since they can't use mounts either. There could be more but those are the ones I remember ^^

Either way, good work, this is a good fix that everyone can benefit from.

Are there any Champions that only have 2 or 3 movement AND can't use Mounts that are not Mausolos, Kasst, Tuatha or Huhrus?

Added Raza the Wild (the Wilding Shaman hero).  Are there any remaining heroes needing to move?

Do people think this mod is relatively balanced?  Is 5 Strategic Move and 4 Tactical Move at L20 too much?  I could consider giving the extra move at L15 and L30, so most of the time they will have a Strategic Move of 3 or 4 which is the same as a regular champion with a warg or a horse.

Considering how powerful a mage is at level 20, I really don't think any tweak to these heroes movement has any effect at balance at all.

But it does make them more useful, right?

Yes of course Without this mod, I would not use them at all.

Do you think that Raza the Wild, as a mage, needs the speed boost?  Would he be okay at a fixed 3 movement, or does he need the full level boost like the other slow heroes, despite having Coal Stones?

You are asking the wrong questions. Do the speed boost do anything at all for Raza the Wild in tactical combat? No it does not, really, you can block with other troops etc. getting the same effect from the speed boost. The main effect of your mod is making these heroes viable options as Sovereign support. Without this mod they would be "anchors" slowing stuff down on the Strategic level, and when you are fighting imba AI's, stuff slowing you down are the first things you sacrifice to catch up.

Well, the main purpose of my mod as I posted in the original post was to stop those other heroes getting dumped.  So it is good that is has done that.

Hey Steve,

 

great mod, that is exactly was i was looking for. Just had a rage attack when i recognized these monster heroes were useless due to their restricted movement.

 

Now Tuatha will crush those 11 insane opponents, hehehe..let the war begin!

 

Thanks a lot for the effort!

 

EDIT: Just found out mods only work for new games? Is this correct or is there a way to apply the mod to an already running game?

no mod works on an existing game as the game files are set in stone and saved with the game when the game is started.  That's how the elemental system works

For some strange reason, every time I delete the extra "<" at the front of Tathua the Troll's <UnitStat_Move> tag, it reverts when I go to download the finished copy.  I don't know why.  Has anyone ever come across something like this?

Does your mod include Bacco, Wilbur and the other heroes that come through events?
